Reinvent a classic trifle
Tired of the same old trifle? Change it up with some clever swaps and new flavour ideas. Mix and match your favourites for the ideal combination, or have a look at these for starters: Chocolate orange trifle, tropical fruit trifles, Aperol spritz trifle, limoncello trifle and Black Forest trifle.
The base: Swap trifle sponges for swirls of Swiss roll, bite-size chocolate brownies or slices of lemon drizzle cake.
The booze: Raid your drinks cupboard and try soaking the base with fruity liqueurs, dark spiced rum or even smoky whisky. For a non-alcoholic version, sprinkle over freshly squeezed orange juice or the sweet syrup from tinned fruits.
The fruit: Go seasonal with sliced clementines, oranges and tangerines, make the most of frozen fruits with dark cherries or mixed berries, grab a tin of peaches or apricots, or go tropical with mangoes and passion fruit.
The custard and cream: Add a little extra flavour by grating in citrus zest, adding a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg, stirring through lemon curd, or mixing in melted chocolate for a real treat.
The topping: Finish with a flourish of shaved chocolate shards, fresh fruits, chopped pistachios or edible sprinkles to give your trifle some real 'wow' factor.
